Jody Craddock Testimonial dinner

Fans will be able to join the promotion heroes from the 2008/09 season and take a trip down memory lane at a special dinner being staged at Molineux for Jody Craddock’s testimonial year.

Mick McCarthy and Terry Connor have already confirmed attendance at the event on Thursday, November 14th, and Jody will also be joined by a host of players from that Championship-winning season, including fellow skipper Karl Henry.

Other former players also planning to attend – subject to club commitments – include Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, Michael Kightly, Chris Iwelumo and many others  joining those still at Molineux who played a part in such a memorable season.

The dinner follows a similar event staged at Molineux as part of Matt Murray’s testimonial year, when the play-off winning squad of 2002/03 were reunited.

Key figures from the promotion success will be interviewed on stage by Sky Soccer Saturday’s Johnny Phillips after the dinner, which is sure to bring back memories of the season Wolves returned to the Premier League.

Jody has been delighted with the response from Mick, TC and the former players in pledging their support for the event.

“Most of the lads are really up for coming as long as they have no other club commitments they can’t get out of,” he said.

“It should be a great night to get as many of the lads together from what was such a great team in winning the Championship title.

“I think it will probably be the first team we’ve all been together since as some of the lads moved on the following season.

“The gaffer and TC were great and really up for the idea and I am sure the banter will all start again.

“It should be a great evening and hopefully one the fans will really enjoy.”

The dinner is one of the showpiece events of Jody’s testimonial year, which is set to finish with a match at Molineux at the end of the season.

A proportion of the proceeds from the testimonial year are to be donated to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Prices for the dinner range from £50 for an individual silver package to £450 for a Gold Package table of ten and £700 for a Platinum Package table of ten to include VIP champagne reception.
